Johnny It of course doesn't bother me how you guys in Houston choose to end your shabbas service. As a matter of interest though, do you all take your prayer shauls off and stand up before you sing Hatikvah or is it less formal that that? And as you are singing the national anthem of a foreign country (assuming you are not all Israeli nationals) do you also sing the Stars and Stripes?
